Dedicated to excellence

I ought to be dedicated to excellence, that everything I do is done to the best of my ability. We ought to give all to God and do all as if we are doing it for Christ. And if we are doing it to such a master who expects the best from us morally, then it follows that he expects the best from us mentally and physically. Whatever good we find ourselves doing, then we should do it to the best of our strength. Worldly men exert all of their efforts to gain a perishing prize, we Christians are gaining an eternal prize, so we ought to even more as Christians, first to show the worthiness of our excellent Lord to receive our mercy and to show the world that there is a more excellent way in doing things. 

O I pray that Christians will top every good thing in this world. We will be the best educators, the best scientist, the best in everything. And even if we cannot be the best, that is to be the number 1, at least our approach to it will not be second best.

I wonder if I fall

I wonder if I fall, do I have the will to stand
Or will I stay down
And think the trouble it ain't worth
Looking at the moon
Will I stay in the fields of dreams
At the end of it all
What is life but a sequence of despair?
Tell me what I know
The impression is a mist 
There is chaos in the breeze
The lustre of urbanity.

Her ways I once enjoyed

Her ways I once enjoyed 
But now disengaged from the facts
Of which her sunny smile compelled me to adore.
The interest of her charm was remembered on an equable farm
The pleasure of flight, on the leaves the birds and I asserted our cries.
I walked through the faultless light 
Her pleasant rays tendered my sight.
O, gentle glow
My Spirit has learned not to be so low
At her remembrance, what could have been
Will never be seen!

K.Oni 

But not defeat!

It is not worth the feelings to dwell too long on what is past
It is unchanging like the rapidity of a bad smell.
Take courage to sit at the enemies table
For only through composure can fear be fought,
The broken supply of hope led to my clamorous chime.
But breathe, even defeat can make sense in love
A dove whispers, unlike the sea she does not roar.
Gentle flames in time will burn the wheat
May my habits reflect the significance of what I perceive.
Each step, no matter how far back it goes
Will seek to regain whatever distance was lost.
Even if at the end of my life I ended up where I started
The markings on the sand will show my history was a continuous war
But not defeat!


K.Oni

I never did think I would win in my own strength

I never did think I would win in my own strength
But I had angel friends who believed
And in the strength of Christ, I went
And came back defeated.
Goliath stumped me 
The devil hurt me
But I will always rise
Because God has declared that no one can ever kill me.
But sometimes I'm a fool
I fail to prepare,
This time I'll dedicate my time
To the tools, I've got to learn
It doesn't guarantee my victory
But the war is already won.
In my losses, I keep my smile
It shows the hope inside
Faith is to keep marching on
Despite the countless loss.

Praying through the scriptures

I find it very pleasing and delightful when I pray through the scriptures. Last week I was praying through Romans 8 and will continue it this week as I have not yet prayed through the whole chapter. I thanked God that there is no condemnation for those in Christ, and pleaded with Him that I should not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. O and how thankful I am that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Thank you for such mercy and grace. Thank you, dear Lord.

K.Oni


I thank thee O God for the loss.

I thank thee O God for the loss.
I look back and what I see now
I would not have liked what I see.
All marvel seems to fade at a long view
But before, a glance would have taken me far away.
Your foresight and wisdom is blessed
Even now as I wait for what I want
And it seems ever far
And my future ever so dim.
I pray for clarity and success, 
But failure and rejection is what I drink. 
Yet I'm strong in soul
And will persevere,
For there is no hope in giving up!
